Get Hartung

Postby Gershwin » Thu 26 Oct 2017 4:48pm

Delisted by Hawthorn and would be a very nice pickup.
Played some very good games this year.
summertime and the living is easy ........

Sounds reasonable, my question would have to be: will he come at a salary commensurate with a delisted player?

Is he a decent kick? What's his major downside that saw him cut so quickly, given that he was a fairly highly-touted second rounder in 2013?

We were going to draft him but took Acres instead. Something to do with attitude.

He must be pretty bad to be dumped by Hawthorn. Their under 25 stocks are very poor.

Thank God.
What about body shape? Hartung is tiny. Acres is a beast.

Anyone else think something else is going on here, easily in the hawks 22 and and is only 22, why has been delisted? But yet they need to keep good youth so they offered Jono O'rouke a contract!! something is not right here.

It’s a major red flag for me.

No fringe best 22 at hawthorn and to me similar to too many we already have.

Don't underestimate Trout, he would buy a 2009 Ferrari on ebay at half-price because 'ah, it's from a very good family!"

If my memory serves me correct (and it usually does) plenty on this site were screaming to draft Hartung when the Hawks took him. Played 188 games this season, averaged 22 possessions but does have an issue with kicking. Still, he is a lightning-quick outside mid - which is what plenty on his site are still screaming for.

Cant defend and his best stat is clangers. He cant even ski downhill. Would rather move Savage to the wing instead.

188 games in a season?? Gun!!
:)
I would love to get him. Cannot believe he got delisted.
Pounce!! Its a gift. He is a speed machine. We need speed. 150-200k. Cheap Insurance for freeman. Essendon will probably get him or carlton. Then he will become flag player.

Don't think we will be bringing anyone else in, but would prefer Hartung over Lonie, Minchington and perhaps Wright.

Brings speed.

Agree its weird

The thing about getting value is seeing value when others dont.
Hawks kot wanting anything makes us think hes not worth it but as you say somwthing not right cause he has eite traits.
Get him cheap. We need all the value we can get

Hartung is a front runner- looks good in a good team, and with Hawthorn not having the best season, he didn't really put his hand up.

And Hawks, at their best, made GOPs look better than they were.
McEvoy rings a bell.
Just because a bloke went OK in BabyPoo, doesn't necessarily mean he's 'elite'.
Puopolo another front runner.
We need guys that can bring class and hardness,
not guys who are good only when others do ALL the heavy lifting.

Not a bad player...certainly has the athletic capacity.
Tackling is weak though.
Still prefer him to Lonie on the list
Nee!

Despite what I said above I wouldnt mind him.
We get him for free. Low price. Would probably play some senior games. Slight upgrade on Lonie.
